Oracle VM Critcal Error.

Hello, I'm learning how to use Oracle VirtualBox.  I'm trying to figure out how to share a VM accross multiple user profiles on the same machine.  I've followed the instruction from this site, -

I've done what was mentioned, rebooted now VirtualBox won't launch I keep getting the attached error.  The mentioned  Component is not listed in Component Services, am i missing something?  If i remove the settings that were mentioned on that site it'll work.

During the process of sharing the vm, I did it wrong. Do the following:

1- validate that the disks are connected to the VM.

2- Restart the virtualbox service in your operating system.

3- Validate the log of the vm to obtain more information. (If step 2 does not work)

4- It also tries to repair the virtualbox installation. (Do this step if there is no option left.).

I remain attentive to your comments.

Thank you for the comment, sorry for my delayed response.  I was ablwe to solve my issue by adding the entire directory where my VM's are store, rather than the single VM instance.

Thank You sir.
